Joshua Redman, Saxophone

One of the most esteemed and charismatic artists of his generation, Grammy Award nominated saxophonist Redman "is unparalleled among horn players today" (JazzTimes). The son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman, he was exposed to many types of music and a variety of musical instruments as a boy. He began playing the clarinet when he was nine, then switched to his primary instrument, tenor Saxophone, one year later.
In 1991, Joshua Redman graduated summa cum laude from Harvard with a B.A. in Social Studies. He had already been accepted by Yale Law School when he deferred entrance for a year to join some friends in Brooklyn. Almost immediately, he found himself immersed in the New York jazz scene and began jamming and gigging regularly with some of its leading jazz musicians. Later that year he won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition and began focusing on his musical career. As they say, the rest is history.
In May, Redman released a new album with The Bad Plus, and he completed an extensive European tour with them in July.
